The natural beauty is unsurpassed. Hummingbirds dart around pine trees. A small brook (popular with young frog spotters) flows along one side of the property. Loons and an occasional heron fish in the sandy bottomed cove. Swimmers emerge revitalized from the spring-fed waters of Lake Winnie.

About Willliam E. French
The owner is a University of N.H. and Standford University, CA trained engineer and pilot, who's built his own plane.
He grew up on a farm in southern N.H. and, surprisingly, still enjoys gardening. However, he regrets to report that Nellie the deer harvested more vegetables than he did last year at 241 Trask Side Road; they are in competition with the turkeys and bear, but seem more friendly.
Bill cleared this land, and built most of this structure. He had assistance from nephews, who found the construction of the fireplace thrilling -- especially at the roof level.
Willliam E. French purchased this lodge in 1989
Why Willliam E. French chose Alton Bay
Best deal on the lake! Spectacular views and visually pleasing, comfortable quarters make your stay memorable.
What makes this lodge unique
Flat, level property makes the home easily accessible for adults and children. Wonderful views of lake and mountains, and brilliant sunsets over the saddleback of Gunstock Mountain.
Double-insulated, the first floor bedroom (located next to the half bath) is quiet and convenient to reach for elderly guests or those with limited mobility.
Home faces west, for late day sun and spectacular sunsets.
Where else can winter visitors watch planes land on an ice runway? Folks come from far away for winter carnival or just to take in the atmosphere of the unique village of ice-fishing bob huts.
Located in a snow belt, the Gunstock Ski Area is a 30-min. drive away. In summer, Gunstock operates a popular zip line.
